What other services do we offer?  We work with boat owners on improving deck hardware and layout to increase sailing efficiency and comfort.  We install lifelines that look great and fit well.  We can help you select a whisker or spinnaker pole, install the hardware to operate and stow it, and then give you hands-on instruction on how to use it.  We replace travelers, install boom vangs, re-bed chainplates, and make up anchor rodes and dock lines.  If you have a project in mind, call us - we're here to help.
